This week's book giveaways are in the Scala and Android forums. We're giving away four copies each of Machine Learning Systems: Designs that scale and Xamarin in Action: Creating native cross-platform mobile apps and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Hi Greg, it's actually more SQL than MySQL. It has a slight bias to MySQL, but is fairly generic SQL code which, with few exceptions, will play nicely with Oracle.
The most important focus for me with this book was to get the concepts out there. It's easy to look up syntax when it occasionally varies, but to understand how and why to normalize, or what those pesky joins really DO, that's the focus of this book.

Thanks Lynn, that is exactly what I was hoping for! We use a couple of different DB's here so a more generic SQL book is perfect!
And thanks Dave for fixing my title, I should have known better.
